The digital conversion of Games Workshop’s Mordheim will get a new warband, a warcamp hub, and armour/weapon customisation when it moves into Early Access Phase 2 tomorrow.
The “big” thing is probably the addition of the Sisters of Sigmar, a warband focused around magic and melee. They’ll be able to use the AOE healing of Healing Circle, an armour-bypassing magical attack called Comet of Sigmar, and a Blessing of Speed that grants additional movement and bonuses to climb/leap/jump-down checks.
If you don’t fancy giving them a whirl, then Mordheim Phase 2 also adds in the Warcamp, a hub area you can use to manage your warband and head into skirmishes. It’ll be a bit limited in tomorrow’s version, but it’ll expand as Early Access pootles along.
Finally, there’s armour and weapon customisation. Tomorrow’s update gives you a big fat chest full of armour and weapons, and you can use them to set up your warband however you want. At the moment armour will purely impact the stats of the unit – visual changes based on armour aren’t in yet – but weapons do change the appearance and animations of units equipping them.
You can buy Mordheim: City of the Damned‘s Early Access version on Steam for £23.99 right now. Alternatively, you can have a look at the video below to see Early Access Phase 2’s new features in motion.Related to this article
